  • Biography

    2014 Sculpture in Context Award winner

    The New Ireland Assurance Sculpture Award for a large outdoor work of distinction in any medium.

    Blessing is a self-taught artist born in a family of artists, his inspiration comes from day to day life, dreams, imagination and the earth itself. Many of his sculptures are filled with human culture, wildlife, nature and overflowing with feeling. Blessing's sculptures are original and one offs, in most cases he works straight into the stone without having to do a model. Only a number of sculptures that he made are created from sketches and models. In his work, to do a sketch will depend on the vision of the creation. Blessing uses more of a photographic memory from the images of artifacts that evolve in his imagination and sometimes the medium itself, will say what it wishes to be, due to its natural features.

    Knowledge, sense of imagination, inspiration, time and patience, will allow the artist to unveil the secrets of the stones.

     “Every sculpture has a story to tell”. by Blessing Sanyanga.
